Invincible: a song composed by my daughter

A few months ago, as part of a school assignment, my daughter was asked to create a personal project of her choice.  She decided to compose an a cappella song about the issue of bullying and developing ones self-esteem as she wanted to focus on the theme of empowerment.  The powerful words, the vocals and harmonies and the rhythm are all created by my 15 year old daughter.  The purpose of the song is to help people gain a greater understanding and awareness of these issues.   The song is written, sung, filmed and edited by my daughter.
I am always so moved especially when I hear the chorus of the song as the lyrics are so powerful: ‘You are invincible, you are wonderful, beautiful, strong. You are incredible, all you need is some help to keep on.’
I had the honour of recording Amelia’s vocals in the studio.  When I heard her sing the song for the first time, I was blown away and deeply moved by the beauty of her voice and the purity and power of the lyrics.  I hope you are as inspired by the song as I was.  Lyrics and video are below.  Kindly share.

Lyrics
Verse 1:
Sometimes life gets you down,
Tired and breathless you lay on the ground.
Their laughs and taunts follow you everywhere,
Now you barely notice their glaring eyes and stares.
Its okay to be angry, its okay to cry,
Someday it will all be over,
And you will get by.
Pre-chorus:
Their words cant hurt you,
You have the strength to move on.
So when you feel broken,
Listen to this song.
Chorus:
You are invincible,
You’re wonderful, beautiful, strong,
You are incredible,
All you need is some help to keep on,
Moving towards the things you love,
Finding your place in this world.
You are invincible.
You’re invincible.
Verse 2:
Life can be painful,
Times can be hard,
But don’t let them stop your progress,
or make you restart.
You’ve worked so hard,
Rebuilt yourself everyday,
But you’re beautiful,
And worth it in every way.
Pre-chorus:
Their words cant hurt you,
You have the strength to move on.
So when you feel broken,
Listen to this song.
Bridge:
You are invincible,
You’re wonderful, beautiful, strong,
You are incredible,
All you need is some help to keep on.
Chorus:
You are invincible,
You’re wonderful, beautiful, strong,
You are incredible,
All you need is some help to keep on,
Moving towards the things you love,
Finding your place in this world.
You are invincible.
You’re invincible.

    Would you please share the lyrics. I am a middle school teacher and a fierce defender of any whose self esteem comes under thoughtless attack.
